This program supports cardiologists in going through a differential diagnosis of patients with left ventricular hypertrophy. Using a case study to illustrate a patient journey, the program will review recommended cardiac imaging and how to use the imaging results to establish a diagnosis.

Examples of ECG and ECHO findings, in addition to disease-specific testing, will be used to increase cardiologists’ confidence in analyzing test results and moving patients towards a diagnosis.


This program has received an educational grant or in-kind support from Sanofi Genzyme.

This activity is an Accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada.
